I ordered a Cracklebox from Steim in the summer of 2009. A few weeks later (actually several weeks, but it was worth it) I received my Cracklebox in the mail. The Cracklebox is essentially a devise that allows the user to create a series of controlled shorts and mis-wirings using the users own body as a conduit. Each player will produce a particular performance of the instrument depending on weight, body heat, pressure, contact and sequence of interaction with the instrument. This was the first couple days I played with it.
